To Ileen's family... I'm terribly sorry for your loss and that I wish you nothing but comfort and solace in your time of grief. Many prayers are being sent your way.

I had been a client of Ileen's since Fall 2018. I was so excited to finally meet someone who "got me" when it came to my hair. I will miss our chats about movies, make-up, great places to eat, and shopping... and why, perhaps, I should reconsider my thoughts on going platinum blonde. I'm losing my fight with my roots so I just wanted to make the jump. *sigh* I will miss her. Greatly. I'm still in shock and it makes me very sad knowing that she's not in the world amongst us any longer. She was a friendly light... and in this day and age, our world could use as much light as possible. I'm sure she is with the Angels and watching over you.

Family please know how blessed I feel to have known Ileen and how sorry I am for your loss. I am a client who one day walked into a salon she worked at and she did my hair. She did it perfectly just as I had asked. I went back to that salon and it was closed. I did not get my hair done for a year and a half, then I found her card. She remembered me, she still had the before and after pictures of my hair. She was so proud to have her own business and she really loved her profession, she was the BEST and rightfully so! My greatest condolences and prayers to the family. You will be deeply missed. God bless you Ileen. JoAnn

I’m so grateful to have had the pleasure to know Ileen. Although I wasn’t a close friend to her, I had been a client of hers since she graduated and got her license. I’ve watched her grow into the bright young woman she became and I followed her to every salon she’s worked for nearly 10 yrs it seems. She was the only stylist I had that actually checked my hair after the cut just the way we were both taught in school. From that moment on I vowed only to go to her. She was such a wonderful person with such a warm heart. So inviting and sweet; she just made me feel right at home. I trusted her. She was always so bold and confident with her profession. She was determined and strived to be better each day. She took chances.. I just adored that about her. The woman had style too; always pulling off new looks every few months I saw her. This was shocking to hear that we lost such a wonderful soul. I can’t express how sincerely sorry I am. Ileen is an angel. She will be missed dearly. She will forever live my heart; always smiling, doing what she loved. I send my deepest condolences to her family and her friends.
Thank you Ileen. May you Rest In Peace for Always. We love you.

I am very shocked to hear that Ms. Ileen has passed. I have not seen her since early Spring of last year. That was the last time she had cut and highlighted my hair, being excited talking to her about finally pregnant with a boy. I always loved coming to her for my hair and someone to talk to. I adored her personality! I have always wondered how she was doing. I thought her number was still in my phone. I don’t have many friends in this area and it was difficult due to the crazy hours I worked at the airport and also taking care of my kids. I wished I had reached out to her more. She is a wonderful person who will be highly missed. I am so sorry for your loss and prayers to the family.

I am so sad to hear of the passing of Ileen. She was one amazing person. She always made sure to take my headache away by putting a hot lavender scented hand towel over my eyes while shampooing my hair. She always made sure to let me know when they had the Paul Mitchell serum breast cancer edition in stock. She was truly a beautiful soul.
